[Partnership] Support for Garmin running watches

I love music when I'm running, but I do not always want to carry my phone.

Garmin introduced a new running watch that let's you download music for on the go, if Spotify whould support this that whould make a ideal combination.

 

UPDATE:

Thank you Spotify for adding Garmin watches to your platform. Hopefully you will soon add the Forerunner 645 and Vivoactive 3 as well. It's going to be great, listening to your motivating playlists without having to take my phone with me.

I have a fenix 5 plus, and a long term premium user, and would love to be able to sync Spotify to it!

And now also the new Garmin Fenix 5X Plus is not supporting Spotify. Spotify needs to address this or many users will start to migrate to other music streaming services.

Awaiting the arrival of Spotify support for my Garmin Fenix 5 plus, too. Garmin and Spotify, the 2 industry leading behemoths and still no love? Please don't make me go to iHeartRadio 😞

Deezer is finally on Garmin, Spotify I give you this September otherwise we have to switch with whole family to Deezer, not going to pay for two services. 

 

this is the case with a lot of garmin users and garmin is adding Music to their new devices so just a matter of time when sporty people leave if you dont add your service to Garmin watches.

I just bought the watch and i am very frustrated with this lack of support. I'll check deezer which has already an app for garmin users.

When will Spotify work with Garmin? Currently I have a Fénix 5x plus and I wouldn't like to change to Deezer...

It would be great to be able to use Spotify with my Garmin Fenix - I do not want to move to Deezer.
